I just got back from the National Hotel where, between malt whiskeys to battle the dropping Nevada City temperature, Noah had handed me a copy of the new Bert Jansch record. He produced it and i played a little slide on the track Bring Your Religion. The whole album is amazing and to be involved with it is mind blowing. Thank you Bert. Hear it here.
